Social Distance Camping

Welcome to the world of social distancing (at campsites). Things have certainly changed a lot in these last few months due to coronavirus.  We’ve all had to change along with them. Our campsites we set up to provide pitches and bell tents spaced out amongst the trees. Wild Boar Wood and Beech Estate Campsites are uniquely structure and laid out to allow social distancing whilst camping.

With social events postponed or cancelled, we’ve all had to live and socialise with just those in our households. Entertainment streaming is at an all time high. DIY and home organisation projects have increased but best of all, so has family bonding. The growth in family bonding is fantastic, but we’re all starting to go a little stir crazy. So throughout this next phase of these changed times and as lockdown eases, why not get outdoors a bit more? Try some social distance camping. With proven benefits to our happiness and immune system, being outside is sure to sort out some of those frazzled families out there.

As well as being great for our mental and physical health, being out in open space has a lower risk of spreading coronavirus. Being outside makes social distancing easy, whether you’re relaxing around the campfire or going on a nature walk there is much more space to have between yourself and those from outside of your household. 


With seasoned campers already making their plans for this years social distance camping trip, we are certainly seeing a huge influx in first time campers and new enthusiasts. We love it! But it does mean we are filling up fast and need to encourage bookings to get in sooner rather than later.  It’s not just us either, there seems to have been a spike in campsite bookings across the country, which is fantastic for the small businesses out there trying to survive after months of closure. Support us and take your family holiday as a social distance camping trip in Sussex this year. 

Is camping safe during Coronavirus?

A social distance camping trip is probably one of the safest holiday you can take with Coronavirus still at large. Large, open spaces with individual spacious pitches make for a great way to get outside for a few days with the family. Our Beech Estate Campsite has just this, as well as 600 acres of woodland for our campers to explore. 

What extra measures are we taking at the campsites to combat COVID-19?

We are taking lots of extra precautions this season, such as contactless check in, increased cleaning and providing hand sanitiser.

What can you do?

We’re all in this together. We will do our absolute best for you but we’d like to ask you to do the same. Follow these simple steps on your social distance camping trip. 

Keep your distance

We may be opening on 4th July but we will still be observing social distancing. Take note of the guidance around you and from the government and make sure you keep distance to others at the campsite.

Limit what you touch

This will limit any potential exposure. If you don’t need to touch it, then don’t. It’s also a good idea to buy everything you need for your stay before you arrive – which means you won’t need to head to any shops on your way or during your stay. 

Bring sanitising wipes

We will of course be maximising our cleaning and using the best products, but bringing your own sanitising wipes, as well as gloves and a mask can help stop the spread of germs.

Stay closer to home

Don’t travel too far to get to your chosen campsite. Our two Sussex campsites are in easy reach of London and the south. Not from the south? Check our Cool Camping for campsites near you. 

If you feel better waiting, wait. 

We’ll still be here for you when you’re ready.
